Notes

First edition of Henry Hallam's touching memoir of his son, the private publication of which came about at the instigation of Arthur's friends, chief among them Alfred Tennyson, who felt that his writings deserved a wider audience after his premature death in Switzerland in September 1834. The memoir is better as a demonstration of Arthur Henry Hallam's thinking than as an account of his life, however, as his father expunged from the record his "infatuation with Anna Wintour, his engagement to Emily Tennyson, and his adventures in Spain" (ODNB), that is, Arthur and Alfred's abortive effort to aid the Spanish rebellion against Ferdinand VII. Hallam is still remembered for his association with Tennyson and as the inspiration for In Memoriam.
